PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT

This new AI search app changes how you browse

According to WHO, there are currently more than 55 million people suffering from dementia, and there are over 10 million new cases a year. It takes a toll not only on the person but also on their family. 

One team is trying to make it easier. Sensay is a platform that uses AI to help patients and their families preserve cherished memories, likenesses, stories, and personalities while also assisting patients by digitally replicating people closest to them.

Once you sign up, you can chat with an AI personality called Athena. Think of Athena as your personal biographer. It will ask you to share your memories, big or small, through voice or text. Athena then listens and learns from each memory and crafts a digital “replica” based on the data provided that emulates the person’s personality. 

According to the team, the benefits go beyond emotion as well. Caregivers can gain a better understanding of how to provide for their loved ones through Athena’s insights and by referencing the newly created digital replica. 

The team has crafted a number of different replicas of some big-name celebrities like Chris Hemsworth that you can test out before committing to creating your own.

AI solved a 2,000-year-old mystery

I did not expect to be writing about the connection between AI and one of the most famous volcanos in the world this morning, but here we are.

You’re forgiven if you’ve never heard of the Vesuvius Challenge. In fact, I only heard about it this morning. It’s a challenge launched by Nat Friedman to read Herculaneum scrolls scorched by a volcanic eruption some two thousand years ago.

What’s the big deal? Well, it has its first winner, and they can thank AI for it. Youssef Nader, Luke Farritor, and Julian Schilliger's team used AI to successfully recover more than 2,000 characters from the scroll. Thanks to their efforts, the team walked away $700k richer.

WOAH

What are they cooking?

🔨 Midjourney phone: Okay, maybe not a phone, but it does look like Midjourney could be cooking up something in the hardware department. The company recently hired an engineer from the Apple Vision Pro to be its “Head of Hardware.”
